ESCAPE TO NATURE WITH PARK’NPAY

Whether it’s a day trip to Kosciuszko, exploring the beaches of the Royal National Park or camping under the stars at the Blue Mountains, motorists will be able to pay their vehicle entry fee via Park’nPay as the app rolls out across national parks over the next couple of months.

Minister for Customer Service and Digital Government Victor Dominello said the NSW Government’s Park’nPay app will be extended to allow people visiting national parks to use the app when purchasing their vehicle entry fee on-line.

“The technology is a game changer and gives drivers the power to easily pay and top up for parking from their phones in a few simple clicks,” Mr Dominello said.

“We’ve made life easier for families and drivers, so they can spend more time enjoying the outdoors and less time worrying about parking.”

 

Environment Minister James Griffin said as NSW reopened and people were free to travel, it is the perfect time to visit the State’s national parks.

“The expansion to our world-famous national parks is a real win for our avid explorers and nature lovers, and with Park’nPay motorists will be able to pay their entry fee from their mobile phone in select areas,” Mr Griffin said.

“We want to make it as easy as possible for the millions of visitors to NSW’s parks each year to spend more time enjoying the stunning natural beauty our state has to offer.

“Through the Park’nPay app, users can see the national park highlighted in blue, which indicates the area that the fee covers.”

More than 78,000 customers have downloaded the Park’nPay app since its launch in 2019 and more than 93 per cent have given the experience the thumbs up.

Motorists can use Park’nPay app across numerous councils as well as find real-time parking availability for Transport for NSW Commuter Carparks, locations of EV charging stations and more than 18,000 private driveways to rent.
